Blogging milestones: 1.5-million views

According to my Blogger data, I hit 1.5 million page views today. And only half of them were looking for nude pictures of Amanda Knox.

These are only about one-sixth to one-eighth what uber-blogger The Marmot gets at The Marmot's Hole, but it does demonstrate moderate success as a blog.

Below is a snapshot of Blogger's top-ten list of the all-time most popular posts on this blog, which together account for about one-tenth of all hits.

If you can't read it so well, click on the image to see a larger version.

If you do a search for these, you can get a feel for why they attract so many Google-based hits, but rest assured that more academic, informative, or edifying posts like 2005's "Korea versus Corea" are also major hit generators.

The sheer length of time a post has been up also favors older posts; only one of the above ("No-pants Wednesday," about undies-clad Survivor contestant Christina Cha) is from 2012 or 2013.

On the other hand, if I look at popular posts from just the past month (see below), we still have the Christina Cha post and the one featuring Korean porn star Almond Joy, but there's also one on Chinese fears of Korean irredentism and another discussing Michelle Malkin's views on Jackie Chang and Psy. In second place, the "News links" post has some eye candy for my male gay readers, while the very lame and pointless Halloween novelty item post seems to attract a lot of spambots.

I fear spambots. They once got me kicked off my own blog for several weeks in August 2006.
